(b) Your entry featured explicit nudity (by any person over and under the legal drinking age). Keep it in your pants…nobody needs to see that. (c) Your entry included disparaging context regarding competitive products. Of course, we think we make the best beer in the world, but there are a lot of great beers that folks work really hard to bring to you. Can’t we all just get along?
